The Loose Women star lasted 14 days in the jungle, during which time she jumped off a skyscraper before becoming known as the cook of the camp.
However, the clinching point came when she became the first person to declare "I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here" during the Watery Grave trial on tonight's episode, earning only two stars for camp.
Speaking to Ant and Dec as they crossed the bridge back to reality, the relieved star was delighted to be back to normal, admitting his highlights real was "emotional" and "a journey".
During her time on the show, White admitted she "wasn't surprised" at the arrival of Matt Hancock, saying she found it difficult to remain impartial and maintain her integrity as an MP.
This is eventually what led her to the multiple grillings she gave the former health secretary over his role in the pandemic, as well as the kissing scandal that eventually led him to stepping down from his job.
But the past few days have clearly proven difficult for White, who was missing her children back at home.
This, plus a lack of sleep and food, led her to panic during the latest Bushtucker trial, making her the first person to quit the challenge midway, despite encouragement from Ant and Dec and Boy George.

"You saw the way I just sort of just crumbled yesterday," she told the Geordie duo. "I think now I've had a sleep on it, I could have said those words as soon as I walked in, and I didn't and at least I tried, and that's the thing that I'll take away."
On her time with the rest of camp, she added: "I've absolutely loved living with those guys. They're brilliant. Absolutely brilliant. I think every single one of us just had fun and we laughed so much. It was great."
Following their goodbye interview, she exited the show to an emotional reunion with her loved ones, with her kids finally being available to her via video call as they remain in the UK.
I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here airs nightly at 9pm on ITV.
